    All dressed in ...... Kimonos!

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     NgaamC shot these pictures of tourists wearing traditional kimonos at the Ryoanji Temple in Kyoto, Japan. She says she decided to go to the temple before the crowded Sakura season. 'I wanted something Zen spirit, calming down my soul at that time,' she says. 'But what I found made me smile!'
    - ssesha, CNN iReport producer

    Just before Sakura season, I visited quiet Ryoanji Temple in Kyoto, famous for its Zen-spirited rock garden. I knew it was very popular for people from all over the world. On that day, half of the visitors were foreign tourists. And I found an English-speaking group was all dressed in our traditional robes! How hilarious!
    They looked enjoying hanging around the temple and feeling true Japan's beauty.
